License our original artwork to use in your own projects!
Over the past couple of decades, we've created a wealth of original art for our planetarium shows. Our artwork library forms a unique resource of imagery that A/V professionals can use when illustrating planetarium shows, Web pages, brochures, publications, advertisements, games, and more.
Depending on your intended usage, we'll issue you a license (permission to use the images as you specify), and provide your images as digital image files.
We started back in the days of film and 35mm slides, when a simple "drop a slide in the tray" usage met the needs of our planetarium customers. Now we have broader, general categories for planetarium usage that allow for making multiple copies of images; their use in other media such as brochures and posters; and show distribution outside the institution's theater.
We've set reasonable license fees for non-planetarium uses, such as personal and business Web pages; multimedia presentations; interactive CD-ROMs and games; brochures and print pieces.
Select a category on the left to view the images, then check out the Usage Categories and License Fees before placing an order.
Q. What if I want slides?
A. Since 1989, we've shipped hundreds of thousands of hand-mounted 35mm glass slides to our Classic Planetarium Shows and Image Library customers around the world. But in 2007, we shut down the Loch Ness Productions slide manufacturing facility. The reason was simple — reliable sources for the mounts and film we used for making slides disappeared.
For customers wanting us to make their slides from our digital images — either from classic planetarium show packages, or from our Image Library — here is our current policy:
"If what you want is sitting on our shelf, you're in luck.
Otherwise, you'll have to look elsewhere to get slides made."
If you continue to work with slide projectors, and still have the resources to make and mount your own slides, good for you! Loch Ness Productions will continue to provide you with digital source material — images and masks — from which you can do your thing. We've been doing that for years.
